LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18) — Saturday during a protest in Louisville, things turned violent when shots were fired at around 1:00 p.m.

Now, police say three people are recovering in the hospital and no arrests have been made.

Local activist, Devine Carama, was there but instead of focusing on the violence, he's focusing on the positive and the change that has been coming out of the demonstrations.

For the past two weeks, Carama has been using his talents as a rapper to releasing a verse a day in honor of Breonna Taylor, the woman who's death sparked these protests.

"It's heartbreaking just being a father of four girls, loving my wife, being a momma's boy, just to see this happen to a young woman who had the rest of her life ahead of her it just hits home it hits a little different."

He says he isn't not going to stop until an arrest is made.

"I just want to do whatever I can do just to keep her name, her legacy alive."
